Emily, 43, posted several Instagram Stories from her night out with Lizzie, 39.
They hit up the Beverly Hills Food and Wine Festival with some other gal pals before dining at a posh restaurant.
The mother-of-three looked to be in the best of moods even though rumors continue to build about the state of her marriage with Shane.
Emily's decision to participate in RHOC, along with other issues like her picking up the parenting slack while Shane studies for the bar exam, has reportedly caused drama in their relationship.

"Emily feels completely neglected by Shane. She’s very emotional right now," a source told RadarOnline.com on Friday, August 16.
"Shane thinks that being on Housewives has changed her," the source continued. "If Shane had his way Emily would be a stay-at-home mom who is just there to take care of the kids. But she’s not."
Emily's full plate of being a mother plus a lawyer and party planner has reportedly left Shane feeling emasculated. "She is successful and she works hard. It seems to be causing a lot of issues, because he doesn’t feel like as much of a man over it," the source explained.
